The IRS Scandal, Day 1287:  Koskinen Urges Trump Transition Team To Name New IRS Commissioner Soon

IRS Logo 2The Hill, IRS Chief Urges Trump Team to Consider Replacement Soon:

The head of the IRS said Tuesday it’s in the best interest of Donald Trump’s presidential transition team to act early when mulling options for his potential replacement.

“One of my concerns for a little while has been, whoever won, they need to understand that, no matter what happens, my term runs out next November,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told reporters after an American Institute of CPA's conference Tuesday.

He said Trump's team would be best served by making sure they have someone to put through the confirmation process by mid-spring in order to prevent a leadership drop off next November. ...

He said that he hopes meetings with the Trump’s transition team will begin soon.

Professor Caron:

Thank you for your unrelenting work in documenting this exceedingly important matter over the years, when many in the "media" either ignored it outright, or wrongly suggested there was "nothing to see here, folks."

I do hope you'll write a book about it some day.
